When Amazon updated its insanely popular Fire HD 8 tablet back in 2020, it added a long-overdue feature—a modern USB Type-C port—to it as well. The 2022 revision comes with slightly better performance than its predecessor, and the USB-C port can now be used to fully charge the tablet's battery in under 2.5 hours. But the charger Amazon ships with the Fire HD 8 is a pretty slow one. So, if you don't want to wait for hours on end for your new tablet to get charged up, consider getting one of these fast chargers for Fire HD 8. While some of these are well-suited to small devices such as smartphones and tablets, others can even charge laptops.

The biggest benefit of Anker's PowerPort III Nano has to be its diminutive size, but don't let that fool you. This tiny USB-C fast charger supports a maximum power output of 20W, which is more than enough for fully juicing up the battery of the Fire HD (2022) in little to no time. You also get a bunch of funky colors like Mint Green and Lavender Grey to choose from.
Everything you need
This combo offering from Samsung includes a wall charger with a 25W power output and a detachable USB-C to USB-C cable, so you get everything to not only fast-charge your Fire HD 8 (2022) tablet but also a bunch of other devices (e.g., smartphones) that support quick charging via USB-C. The only downside here is the design, which looks rather bland compared to something like Anker's 511 Nano.
What better way of juicing up an Amazon-branded tablet, than using a charger that also comes from Amazon? The simple yet functional Amazon Basics One-Port charger comes with an 18W output for easily charging your Fire HD (2022) tablet's battery in a jiffy. Having a variety of built-in safeguards (e.g., over-current protection), it offers a safe way of charging your smart devices. You also get a nifty blue LED indicator for added convenience.
We need to charge a wide array of smart devices on a daily basis, so anything that makes that process a little less cumbersome is a must-have. Say hello to Hrepeo's dual-port charger, which comes with 65W of total maximum output that's delivered via two ports - one USB-C and one USB-A. This means you can use this thing to fast charge your Fire HD 8 (2022) and one more device, both at the same time.
For the road
Having a charger while you're at home is great, but when you're in a car it becomes even more essential. Anker's PowerDrive PD 2 is a handy car charger that supports a maximum 18W power output via its USB-C port. Not only that, but you also get a USB-A port with a 12W power output for extra convenience. So, even when you're about to hit the road with your Fire HD 8 (2022) and other smart devices, you won't have to worry about them running out of juice.
Two devices, one charger
With one USB-C port and one USB-A port packed into a versatile and pocket-friendly design, Anker's PowerPort PD 2 is just what your Fire HD 8 (2022) and other devices need. The USB-C port comes with a 20W power output while the USB-A port features a 12W power output, giving you 32W of total juice for everything from tablets to smartphones to wireless earbuds. You can pick from two colorways - white and black - both of which look cool.
Super-fast charging speeds
It may seem like many other wall chargers, but there's one key feature that differentiates UGREEN's offering from the rest, and that's support for Quick Charge 4.0 standard. Add to that full compatibility with essential specifications such as PD 3.0 and PPS, and you've got a charger that can rapidly top up not only the Fire HD 8 (2022), but pretty much any modern device you can think of.
For those (also) in Apple ecosystem
As is the case with majority of Apple's products, the official 18W charger costs a little more than other competing products. That being said, it's a reliable option if you have one (or more) Apple devices that you also want to fast-charge, in addition to the Fire HD 8 (2022). Thanks to the absence of any logos or other design elements, it also looks quite minimal and clean.
Stylish and reliable
Amazon's Fire HD (2022) tablet's battery can be fully charged in just under 2.5 hours with a 15W fast charger, and that's exactly what makes this offering from EGK a no-brainer. Essentially a combo package, it includes both a compact wall charger and a 6.6ft long USB-C to USB-C cable, giving you everything you need for keeping your Fire tablet (and other devices) juiced up.
These are the best fast chargers for Amazon Fire HD 8
While it certainly can't compete with something like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, the 2022 revision of Amazon's Fire HD 8 is still an extremely well-rounded device that—thanks to a bunch of useful updates over each generation—continues to be ranked among the best Android tablets available out there. Among its many highlights is a modern USB-C port, which allows the built-in battery at speeds that would simple have been impossible to achieve with the archaic microUSB port that previous-generation models had. That being said, you still need a fast charger to get those speeds since Amazon bundles the tablet with a measly 5W wall adapter.
Our top vote goes to good ol' reliable Anker's 511 (also known as PowerPort III) Nano charger, which comes with a 20W power output and can charge not only the Fire HD 8 (2022), but also most modern devices like smartphones and wireless earbuds. But if you want that comes with its own cable, we suggest getting EGK's 15W wall charger and USB-C to USB-C cable combo offering.
Then there's Anker PowerDrive PD 2, which is something of a must-have if you often go on road trips and take all your devices with you. With one USB-C port and another USB-A port, it can juice up just about every device of yours while you focus on your journey. Another worthy mention is Hrepeo's dual-port charger, which comes with a USB-C and a USB-A port and gives you a combined 65W power output, sufficient for not only laptops and smartphones, but even laptops.
